How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was really nice. Friday night my parents, Mike and I went to a local restaurant. I got really delicious steak tacos. Then Saturday I woke up and did a 30 minute HIIT peloton ride followed by the studio Tone It Up workout and the daily moves.
The studio workout was not for me, since I broke my hip in July my left side is really tight and I have a lot of trouble touching the ground. The workout involved a lot of touching the ground and I found myself really frustrated. I know I shouldn’t be frustrated with my body because it’s been through so much and it’s still strong, however; sometimes I wish I had the same flexibility I had prior to breaking my hip.
Sunday was an active recovery day for me so I did a Peloton yoga class. This was my first time doing a peloton class and I really enjoyed it. I think I will start incorporating those workouts into my schedule.
Today I am heading to a barre class for the first time in a year. When I lived in Hoboken I did barre all the time and I really miss it. I found a local barre studio and signed up for a class this morning. Hopefully I like the studio and can go more often.
The goal is barre 2 X per week. Yoga 1 X per week. Pelaton 3 X per week. Studio Tone It Up workouts 3 X per week. Daily Moves 5 X per week.
Here’s my workout schedule for this week:
- Monday: Barre, Daily Moves
- Tuesday: Pelaton, Studio, Daily Moves
- Wednesday: Pelaton, Studio, Daily Moves
- Thursday: Yoga, Daily Moves
- Friday: Barre, Daily Moves
- Saturday: Pelaton, Studio, Daily Moves
- Sunday: Rest
This is week 2 of the Tone It Up Love Your Body challenge and we are talking about something you love about your body, I chose my arms. I love my arms because they have never given up on me. Even when I was at my sickest or when I broke my hip my arms always stayed strong and helped me when I only had one working leg. They literally served as my second leg. My arms were the first part of my body that the cancer started to go away on. My arms helped me get in and out of bed when I couldn’t get up and helped me get up from sitting when I struggled to stand. They are strong and I am grateful they never let me down.
